Don’t have any form of sexual contact with another person while treating your gonorrhoea. And don’t have sex with someone while they’re treating their gonorrhea. 

Gonorrhea can be easily cured with antibiotics. Some strains of gonorrhea resist the antibiotics and are hard to treat, so your nurse or doctor may give you two antibiotics, in shot and pill form. Take all of your medicine the way your doctor or nurse tells you to, even if your symptoms go away sooner. The infection stays in your body until you finish all of the antibiotics. Your partner(s) also must get treated for gonorrhea so you don’t re-infect each other or anyone else.

If you only have 1 dose of medicine, wait until a week after you take it to have sex. If you’re taking medicine for 7 days, don’t have sex until you’ve finished all of your pills. And get tested again in 3 months to make sure the STD is gone.
